Postcards from Camp

Summary

The Llamas did what they do best in 2013: go 6-7 or 7-6. It took a strong finish last season, as they won 3 of their final 4 games to get to 6-7 and end up with the #7 pick in the first round to go along with the first rounder they scored for Antonio Gates. The Llamas saw several players regress (Tannehill, Wallace, Givens, Amendola) which led to a lot of their problems. One thing that did go right was when they took a chance on LeVeon Bell in the draft, a player several teams had scratched off their draft boards. When he returned to the field he looked like a solid RB1 for the next five years.

Ryan and...Kevin? Owner Kevin Sansone is keeping a close eye on his GM after a disappointing season

Critical Question

Can Gibby continue to keep meddling owner Kevin Sansone out of team affairs? Gibby managed to avoid any public blowouts with Kevin last season, but with pressure mounting to make the playoffs for the first time since 2010, we could see a feud play out on the front pages of YFFL.com at some point in 2014.

Player to Watch

Jimmy Graham, TE (NO) - The Llamas will continue to watch Jimmy Graham and wonder why they ever included him in that Drew Brees deal.

Lineup

Ryan Tannehill, LeVeon Bell, Demarco Murray, Danny Amendola, Mike Wallace, Coby Fleener, Greg Zuerlein, #7 Draft Pick

Outlook

This team looks like it was in a car wreck and they are trying to resuscitate it in the ambulance on the way to the emergency room. They are easily the second worst team in the league despite any illusions that their 6-7 record from last year might make you think. Bell is a player you can build around, but the rest of the team looks like it should barely be cracking another team's utility spot.

Projections

4-9; 498 Points; 4th Place AFC East
